All About Michigan

Michigan, known as the “Wolverine State” and the “Great Lakes State”, joined the Union on January 26, 1837 as the 26th state. The word “Michigan” comes from the Indian word meaning great or big lake.

The State of Michigan consists of two non contiguous peninsulas, headlands surrounded by Lakes Superior, Michigan, Huron, St Clair, and Erie. The upper and lower peninsulas of Michigan are connected by the five mile long Straits of Mackinaw Bridge.

Michigan, in the East North Central Region, has a northern and eastern border with Ontario, Canada; to the south with Ohio and Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin share the Lake Michigan border, the Upper Peninsula borders with Wisconsin, and Minnesota touches Lake Superior at the western end.

Trivia question: What do Annie Edson Taylor and Madonna Ciccone have in common? *

Wisconsin, Michigan, and The Great Lakes Poster Map, 1973, Land Between the Waters

Land Between the Waters map text -

Newcomers to Michigan, Wisconsin, and the Great Lakes have been uncovering pleasures and surprises ever since French explorer Jean Nicolet paddled into this region in 1634. On a search for a northwest passage, he stepped ashore near Green Bay, thinking he had reached the Orient.

...

Lumber barons of the past century took out much of the timber; mining companies skimmed off the richest ore; overfishing and such pests as the sea lamprey and alewife reduced the fish supply. But a bountiful land remains. Vacationists come from afar, drawn by the outdoors and north woods peace.

Jacques Marquette, known as Pere Marquette, was a Jesuit missionary to the French colony of Quebec in present day Canada. He founded the first European settlement in Michigan at Sault Ste. Marie, and later St. Ignace (1671) which is now the northern end of the Straits of Mackinaw bridge.

In 1673 Pere Marquette with French-Canadian explorer Louis Jolliet were the first non-Native Americans to see and map the northern portion of the Mississippi River.
